Orientation Advisors Outside the Front Gates

Congratulations to our newly admitted Georgetown students! We look forward to orienting you this spring to life on the Hilltop. New Student Orientation (NSO) officially begins Tuesday, January 10, 2017 at the Welcome Session. The first day of classes is Wednesday, January 11, 2017. Whether you are a freshman, transfer or international student, NSO is an exciting experience where you prepare for the next few years on-campus, meet current students, staff, and faculty, and establish connections with other new students.


The GOCard is the official identification card of Georgetown University, and much more! Click here for more information on the GOCard.

Submit a photo for your GOCard via email to your GOCardphoto@georgetown.edu by January 3rd 5:00pm.
